TCTA's statewide awards honor those who have made outstanding contributions to public education, the teaching profession or TCTA during the past year.

Participation in the awards program is an opportunity for TCTA local affiliates and members-at-large to publicly recognize local members and others who impact their schools and profession. It's also a great way for CTAs to attract positive attention from the media, peers and administrators.

Congratulations to the winners for the 2019-20 school year.
